said John Barrack, Chef Negotiator, CFTPA "This illustrates the sharp contrast between ACTRA and the other unions and guilds in the production sector".
The CFTPA and APFTQ saw today's negotiations as a final attempt to avoid a long and difficult labour dispute involving the courts.
I was very active in the 1980s, and recently I have been very active again with the CFTPA
The CFTPA and APFTQ will be holding a press conference in Toronto today (Monday, January 8) at 12:30 pm at the Marriot Hotel at 90 Bloor Street East.
The Negotiating Committee representing the producers is a 3-way partnership made up of the CFTPA, APFTQ along with all the US Studios who negotiate with one voice for the mutual benefit of all producers.
Also subsequent to quarter end, the CFTPA
and ACTRA reached a renewed two year Independent Production Agreement that secures labour stability in the Canadian film and television marketplace over that period.
